Val and Darren Sugars share the story of Val’s parents, who, taken from their parents at an early age, experienced unhappy and abusive childhoods, but who, together were able to provide a happy and loving home for their children. Val shares her own story of struggle for recognition and acknowledgement of her late father’s experience from both the government who authorised the practice and the home which failed to care responsibly for her father as a child. Darren, a singer/songwriter, shares some of his songs, one of which is based on Val’s parents’ experiences.
Sunday 17th June at 3:00pm. Followed by afternoon tea.
